Tracking of the telephone is considered shameful and unethical activity, and many people will judge those who use tracking to locate their children’s phones or spouse’s device. However, in reality, there is a bunch of situations when phone tracking turns out useful and handy, and can even prevent some tragedies from happening.
The very first case that comes to mind is lost or stolen telephone. While a decade ago this was a serious problem, because the person lost connection, contacts, and had to spend money on a new device, today this is an outright tragedy, because the telephones are mini computers we always carry with us. They are tied to important accounts like bank account and email, they have access to social media profiles, personal photos, videos, and notes, a list of contacts, and tons of other sensitive data that no user wants to lose. So, having a tracking app on your device is actually a good idea.
Another possible situation that might make you think of phone tracking is having young children. Unless you take them to school and back, and bring them everywhere in your car, you may not be aware of where your kids are. If they actually get lost in the city, you will go crazy without the possibility to contact them and find them. On the other hand, tracking a telephone is an easy and fast way to find the owner of the device. You will always be able to check if your kid is actually at school, or where he or she is on their way home. While this may seem unethical, this can also prevent some serious cases from happening with the kids.
A similar case is for the parents having teenage kids, especially teenagers who have problems with communication, and whose relationships with parents are far from perfect. teenagers, in general, tend to find troubles for themselves and mess with the dubious company from time to time. If you want to know exactly where your teenage kid is, tracking their device is a good idea. You risk to be caught, of course, and then your relationship will become even worse. However, it is better to be guilty in violation of the right to privacy than in neglecting your kid altogether.
The last possible scenario is you suspect your spouse of cheating on you. Overall, when we are talking about adults, here, you have even fewer rights for violation of their privacy. However, it is totally understandable, because cheating can directly harm you, your health, well-being, and the whole family. Therefore, in case you suspect the spouse in some inappropriate activities, it is better to double-check.
These are the cases when phone tracking can turn out handy and useful. Make sure you do not abuse this possibility in vain.
